What is reputation management?

Reputation management is the process of improving your company’s status among Internet users, specifically in Google search results, online reviews, and other high-traffic areas online.
How much do reputation management services cost?

Businesses may pay anywhere from $500 to $10,000 per month for reputation management services. Some agencies may charge an initial fee and an ongoing monthly cost. If you pay by location, you may pay anywhere from $50 to $1000 per location.

How to earn 11.5x more customers
Believe it or not, 92% of consumers check online reviews before buying.
So if you have a negative reputation online, you’re probably losing 92 customers you could have for every eight you get.
But there’s a silver lining — that means you could increase your sales by 11.5 times your current amount, assuming you’re only earning 8% of your potential customers.
That’s the bottom line for corporate reputation management. You could be earning so much more. You could be beating your competitors so much more. Likewise, you could be thriving online if only your customers didn’t see the bad things people have said about you online.
Fight back — and win
By choosing a corporate reputation plan from WebFX, your company straps on the gloves, gets in the ring, and starts throwing punches.
Every time you throw a new punch, you don’t just take down an unfair review — you make it harder for new unfair reviews to get seen.
That’s the foundation of WebFX’s approach to reputation management. We go on the offense while building up your defense, so you can come out the gate swinging and relax once you’ve won.
Then, we keep an eye on your online reputation to make sure all that negativity doesn’t come back. And if it does, we deal with it as quickly as possible.

The “big 3” crucial websites for reputation management
In addition to your own website, corporate reputation management takes advantage of other key online properties to improve your company’s image.
These three sites also happen to be the three biggest sources of online reviews.
So what are the three most important sites to reputation management?
Google is the king of almost all things online — and that includes your company’s reputation.
Google likes to rank websites high when it’s certain those websites provide a positive experience to their users.
Fortunately for you, that means you can get Google to rank your own website by creating an intuitive, easy-to-use website for your visitors.
Unfortunately, sites like Facebook and Yelp already exist, and they’re two of Google’s favorite sites in the world.
That means Facebook and Yelp have an advantage over you when you first make your website. They’ll frequently show up in search results for your brand, and they may even beat you for a few months before Google’s algorithm figures out it should be ranking you before the review sites it likes so much.
On top of that, Google is also a review site now. Customers can leave positive and negative feedback for you that shows up right in search results.
That means if someone’s looking at your brand name, they’re also looking at your reviews!
Earning positive reviews on Google is crucial to improving your company’s reputation. Remember that 92% of consumers look at online reviews before buying. Since Google is the most popular website on the planet, you can be sure a lot of your customers are checking your reviews there.
But Google is only the first review site that impacts your company’s reputation!
Facebook is the world’s #1 social network. With more than a billion users, it’s safe to assume that a lot of your potential customers will look for you there, in addition to Google.
Controlling your Facebook reputation is a little easier than Google. Just follow these steps:
- Set up an account
- Fill out all information
- Start posting about your business
- Respond to comments
- Encourage customers to leave reviews
As you use Facebook, you’ll naturally grow a following of dedicated potential customers who want to hear from you.
Eventually, you’ll get a customer complaint. But you can control that by responding to the complaint and addressing its circumstances.
That shows your customers — especially the complainant — that you care about their feedback, and it passively encourages positive reviews.
Facebook’s reviews are also important because they show up in Google search results as well. So if you have negative Facebook reviews, your potential customers will see those, turn tail, and run.
That’s why it’s so significant to keep a reputable standing on Facebook. With it, you can convert new customers from social media and search results at the same time.
With Facebook under control, it’s time to jump to the last critical site for reputation management — and it’s a big one.
Yelp was one of the Internet’s first websites dedicated to online reviews. Since it’s creation, it’s grown more influential and powerful with each passing year.
Today, Yelp is the epicenter of online reviews. Its ratings show up in search results, apps, and dozens of other media formats.
If you haven’t started using Yelp, someone else might’ve already left you a review, and you don’t know it! Users can set up your listings for you, which means you need to claim it as quickly as possible.
You can do that by going to Yelp, looking up your business, and clicking the “Claim” option.
On the off chance you’re not listed on Yelp yet, you can set up your account similarly.
Once you own your Yelp listing, you can start responding to reviews that users leave. These include negative and positive reviews since it’s important to respond to both types.
With Yelp on your side, you’ve taken control of the three major sites that control your reputation online.
